The Solomon Sisters Wise Up

Rating: 8/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner


The three Solomon sisters seem to be living the ideal Manhattan yuppie life style. Each is successful in their particular career and their love lives are blooming, but the latter will change.

Wow magazine editor Sarah has dated Griffen for two months, only to learn she is six weeks pregnant. When she explains why she is not drinking alcohol at dinner, Griffen looks like someone kicked him in the gut.

Cynical (at least about the pregnant pause of men when it comes to pregnancy) oldest sibling Ally has failed to become pregnant after years of trying. When Ally’s ovulation informs her that this is the ideal time to become pregnant, she finds spouse Andrew wasting sperm on Marnie.

Youngest sister, Zoe, a dating advisor, feels like a lawyer when it comes to herself as a client. She has learned her shortcomings when her client asked her to determine whether her date is a winner, but a stunned Zoe knows him too well.

When their father announces his engagement to Giselle, who is younger than his daughters, the trio figures they still need to wise up when it comes to men.

THE SOLOMON SISTERS WISE UP is a humorous chick lit tale that rotates the story between the three siblings by alternating chapters. That makes for extra amusement when readers observe the same incident from radically different perspectives, but also difficult to follow as there are three equal subplots intersecting with their father’s tale. Melissa Senate provides a solid look at modern female singles struggling to achieve in relationships what they seem to effortlessly accomplish in business All this is found inside a screwball romp.
